Rick Pitino wants Louisville players to quit being Christina Aguilera

Rick Pitino is apparently a pop music kind of guy. Pitino wrote a blog post on Sunday, a day after Louisville’s loss to hated-rival Kentucky, in which he evaluated the current state of the team, among other things. In addressing the Cardinals’ “biggest weakness,” Pitino used two of pop’s biggest stars, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, as analogies.

Let me give you an analogy of our front court knowing who they are.  It’s like having Christina Aguilera to sing at a concert, she comes out, ignores her great voice and dances for two hours. That’s our front court. I remember as if were yesterday asking Rodrick Rhodes, who played for me at UK, this question.  You are a great defender, slasher and passer — why are you trying to show everyone the 3pt shot is your thing?

In other words, Montrezl and Chane – Need to dominate the paint. Rebound like Kenneth Faried , defend like Dennis Rodman, block shots and dunk.  Score off rip moves and leave the dancing to Justin Timberlake.  After all, what got Amare’ Stoudemire recognized wasn’t his jump shot and passing abilities.

Not only does Pitino know how to evaluate basketball talent, but he also seems to have a music sense as well. Aguilera might even stand to learn some things from the championship coach.
